First stop was at The Loopy Ewe – hard to find but worth wandering around looking like a doofus continually checking my phone and the directories knowing that “I’m here! I’m right here! The dot says so!” when really you’re just standing 15 feet below where you should actually be.
The store certainly did not disappoint. Windows everywhere let in all kinds of natural light to really show off the yarn selection’s best colors – I’m talking the best brands, the best colors, the most hard to find combinations of the aforementioned and everything else you could imagine. Along with really nice employees and shoppers (but really, yarn crafters are the nicest folks anyway, yes?).
Next, I visited Your Daily Fiber whom I’ve mentioned before on the blog and just knew I had to see what their little shop looked like. I scoured the racks for the laceweight skein of yarn I lost (well, I didn’t *lose* it, per se, but it was bought out from under me! Oh the horror!) and it wasn’t there, but I’m going to keep looking everytime I visit and hopefully I’ll get lucky! I didn’t come home empty-handed, and lucky for me, I didn’t break the bank either.
I picked up a single skein in the prettiest colorway of the Acadia yarn from The Fibre Company. I’m thinking a hat for this lonely skein, it’d look great knit up in something that has light cables or lace – not too busy but not plain either. I’m thinking foliage patterns….we’ll see.
Have you visited any new-to-you yarn stores lately?
